This very practical and interactive course will provide staff with the chance to explore what non-specialists can do to help colleagues in distress feel safe, supported and understood. Staff will gain an understanding of what mental health is and how to challenge stigma. The course gives staff a basic knowledge of common mental health issues and teaches them how to look after their own mental health and wellbeing. We also offer a full day Mental Health in the Workplace course.

By implementing a Mental Health training programme we can ensure we have a stronger focus on stress and common Mental Health illnesses, provide managers with a robust mental health action plan to help those in crisis or who need information, and to also show how we promote Mental Health and Well-being in our workplace’s and provide Information on self-help and well-being to aid prevention.
Suitable for all staff that want to increase their awareness in Mental Health for themselves or others.
